New Patient or Not?

About Advize Health

Advize Health LLC is a medical record review and advisory company headquartered in Tampa, Florida and has employees all over the United States. You might remember our cost-effective and efficient medical record review services as those of Sunera Healthcare, however, due to rapid growth and success, we have re-branded and re-defined our company to create Advize Health, moving full steam ahead in 2015. Our Audit practice produces complete and accurate medical record reviews that fully explain how the codes were determined, down to the actual elements within the medical record. Our highly skilled and experienced team of experts performs the reviews in order to identify inconsistent documentation between clinical records and claim payment. As added benefit to becoming Advize Health, we now offer staff augmentation, education for both payers and providers through our Advisory practice.
